We're 'feeling' beings.
Let me explain.
Back when I was a kid, I used to get bullied... a lot...
It didn't matter which school I was in, who I was hanging out with or what I was doing.
At some point, some douchebag would have a pop.
Sometimes, it would be a physical pop, other times it would be verbal.
Oh, and just so you know, the whole 'ignore them and they'll go away' advice adults give is complete bullshit.
Ignore them and they try even harder to get your attention!
Anyways... The point is, that after a while, I sort of tuned into the bully vibe.
I could tell whether something was going to happen.
